Essential Grid

I have a datasource that I am connection my databoundgrid to and then save a disconeccted recordset to a xml file due to the DB being offsite. I have a clone in memory that I want to manipulate, sort and filter and then pass over to a report - in the manipulated format, of course. Can one save a view from the datagrid back to a dataset that has been manipluated back to am xml file as described above? If so, on what event would be best suited for this procedure. CurrentCellChanged would seem like a good start to me!

Filtering and sorting the data in a Datatable does not change the DataTable. Instead, some DataView object (usually the DataTable.DefaultView) is modified to reflect the filtering and sorting. The DataTable remains unchanged as the result of a filter and sort. So, I do not know of a way to 'just save' the DataTable in any to that would actually save the table as reflected by a DataView. The DataSet.WriteXML will not persist any dataview information. So, I think you would have to explicitly write the XML file yourself.

I thought not, but I needed a confirmation. Thanks Clay!
